PostSecret Live at UAlbany

Frank Warren.

Mentioned in this the week ahead, but we figured it's worth highlighting: Frank Warren -- the creator of PostSecret -- will be at UAlbany Tuesday. From the blurbage:

"PostSecret Live" is a multi-media presentation by Frank Warren, founder of PostSecret. See the postcards that were banned from the books. Hear the inspiring and funny stories behind the secrets. Listen to Frank's emotional secret or share your own at the microphone.

The a book signing will follow the talk, which is part of sexuality month at UAlbany.

PostSecret is, of course, the popular online project that collects secrets people send in on postcards. A traveling exhibit from the project was at UAlbany in 2011. Here's a TED talk by Warren from last year.

The event starts at 8 pm in the campus center ballroom on the uptown campus. It's free and open to the public. But there are no tickets, and it's first arrive, first seat -- so if you're interested in going, you should show up early. For what it's worth, more than 500 people have already indicated on the Facebook that they're going.
